2 “Release of public sector information creates opportunities for innovative use and reuse of data, and allows the commercial, research, and community sectors to add value.” Australian Government [2013] “The next generation of innovation in… academic research or public services will be possible because we find new ways to harness and learn from data.” World Economic Forum [December 2013] “ Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.” Barack Obama, President of the United States [January 2009] [2013] “Not only are we making more effective decisions through improved use of data, but also involving communities, making them more informed and empowering them to deal with future challenges.” World Economic Forum [January 2013] “It enables data-driven decision making: parliamentarians, policy makers, civil society organizations and individuals can see progress and make accurate, informed decisions on issues that affect people's lives.” Kenya Open Data Initiative [2013] “It makes the government more accountable to citizens and strengthens our democracy. It brings us better public services and it feeds economic and social growth.” “By opening up more data, and through innovative use of technology, we can crowd- source ideas and co-create applications with the wider community.” Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Singapore Deputy Prime Minister [April 2013] Open Data around the World

15 Solution Business ChallengesCustomer Results / Benefits BBITS created its free Love Clean Streets solution, available through the Windows 8 Marketplace and the Windows Phone Store. It lets people take pictures of neighborhood blight like vandalized buildings or “fly- tipping” – illegal garbage dumping. Efficiently collecting and responding to complaints about environmental crime is easier said than done. Call centers can be costly to operate, and websites used for reporting can be slow and cumbersome tools for quickly addressing issues. 34 percent aggregate decrease in the use of call centers and less website reporting, and more use of the app. Savings of £125,000 a year 87 percent reduction in the time it takes to process an issued reported, a 73 percent reduction in the amount of graffiti seen on the streets, and less than a day to clean up fly- tipping. Ian Blackburn, Founder, Blackburn IT Services The Windows development tools, the scalability of Windows Azure, and new features like the charms and tiles in Windows 8 give us more options than ever before for acting on our own ideas and those from our customers.
